Mortar City is torn apart by war. It has grey, hazy skies, torn down buildings, crumbling floors and other war stuff that you find in war-torn cities. Primitive, steampunk style guns(for that is the technology level of Mortar City) litter the floor, though you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that’s either working or has ammo.
The war which turned it from a happy, smiling place to a dreary place where policemen don’t just work for thieves, but actually are thieves, and where you booby trap your pockets to deter said thieves, was called the Trinity War.
Nobody really knows about the Trinity War. It’s called that because apparently there were three sides-the Crux, a faction which worships robots and wishes to destroy the government to bring about a land ruled by robots, the Silencers, a quiet faction who lurk in the shadows, trying to overthrow the government to grab power for themselves, and the Overlords, the current oppressive government, corrupted and power-loving .
The two revolutions attacked the government headquarters at the same time,helped along by traitors and spies in their midst, and the government decided to simply sit back and watch them eliminate other.
According to old men and older scrolls, the government underestimated the rebellion or something, and got caught in a huge three way melee and everyone died.br\>
The buildings are patched up with scrap metal and junk litters the floor(the guns are included in that list). The citizens are hardened, tough people who’ve been fighting all their lives.
Cool setting! I personally recommend some improvements and stuff:
1) Put the “The last two paragraphs were unimportant, unless you’re writing a historical RPG.” before the two paragraphs.
2) Divide the post into helpful points, like “Overview”, “History”, “Current State” and several more, which are covered in point 3.
3) The description could do with several more points, such as:
a. Current Government form
b. Available buildings within city
c. Notable locations
d. Local gangs, if any
e. Commonly used weapons
f. Laws active, if any
h. Population breakdown
While these are, naturally, optional, they’d add more flavor.
Otherwise, I say it is really cool. Could we base mafias and strategy games on it, too? It would make a good platform for a Gang vs Gang mafia, or a miniature turf war Strategy game.

Anyone can use it… just as long as you don’t turn it into Ponyland, a happy place of magic and fun! or whatever.
